I've had Birchbox and Glossybox in the past and cancelled them as neither very exciting. A lot of repeats and tiny sample sizes. I'm not sure if a 14 year old would be impressed as it's not very exciting.
Last year my 11 year old who's into Zoella, Tanya Burr etc had a make up advent calendar and loved it. She put each days in a make up bag I bought her specially and she still uses it all.
I replied on a similar thread yesterday saying I love my look fantastic subscription. You get some sample sizes and some full sizes But thinking on I'm not sure a teen would. It's a mix of makeup, hair and skincare but I'm not sure a teen would appreciate the skin care. My two teens are very envious when my boxes arrive though. I pass on the stuff I won't use to them. They also do larger more expensive boxes. I got my dd one for her 16th birthday. It Benefit which she loves and contained full sized products. I think the advent calender is a good idea. Boots have sleek and N.Y.X ones this year. Also super drug have a good range too.
Have a look at Bettybox. Its actually designed for teenagers and sent monthly and is a period box, ie. includes tampons etc (you can choose) But also includes a 'for yu' box every month which includes make up and beauty products, lipsticks, face washes etc and usually some choc too. Normally about 6-8 items. I think its actually better value than glossybox etc. and you wouldn't get anti aging stuff etc as its aimed at teenagers.
